received a mail from nokia today morning stating that by the end of september, nokia messaging will no more be available as a trial version.
just wanted to know if others have also received the same message and if yes what do we do now?

You likely received the trial expiration email because an Operator in your country has officially launched the Nokia Messaging service. What country are you in?
This was the mail i got from Nokia Messaging team BTW i too from India
Thank you for participating in the Nokia Messaging beta trial. We
have enjoyed serving you, and have learned much from the feedback and
input from you and tens of thousands of Nokia phone owners. This message is to
inform you that the trial period will come to end at the end of
September and may not be available on your operator network.
Please keep in touch with your operator about this service availability.
Thank you for using Nokia Messaging and we look forward to serving you again
in the future.

Who in their right mind would pay for a service as unreliable as Nokia Messaging?
The arrogance at Nokia can be really frustrating.
Let me see if I got this straight:
When I bought my phone I choose an E series, E75, exactly with the same specifications as another nokia model but 100 EUR more expensive, just because it had "Enterprise Features" and "push mail" that was included with the phone.
*Now* you (and/or the operator, who cares?) is telling me that I need to pay for a feature that was the flagship of the phone? This has got to be a bad joke
Even worst taking all the bad feedback of the service we can see in the forums.
Unless there's a good explanation for making me pay for something I already payed for when I bought an E series, my company will surely swap brand...
I just got this message....
We hope you have enjoyed your trial of Nokia Messaging. Your trial has come to an end. This is the final email you will receive using the service.

is this for real? I am with Sonera IN FINLAND. I have had no communication from Sonera about email services and there was no prior mention that the service would just be discontinued...telling my my trial is ending is very, very different than telling me I have no further chance to use the system...
I was holding out for a N900, but guys you have seriously screwed up here...if there is no email service there is no point having the device....get the email switched back on now or this will end up on the blogs quickly and it will not be pretty...
I've googled, read, and still don't understand.
I'll forget the fact that I was sure that the main feature of my E75 was not a trial feature - I should have read it more carefully; I'll also forget the instability of the system, it's a "trial", after all.
This is in the FAQ's of the service
How much does Nokia Messaging cost?You may incur charges in connection with the transfer and receipt of data to your mobile phone and may not be included in your flat data rate plan. Please contact your operator to know how much you will be charged.
But can someone explain me what exactly I'm being charged for?Let's see:
- I pay for a data plan that allows me to be permanently online (fring, gravity, etc).
- My email accounts are IMAP accounts
- Imap has the IDLE feature. From wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMAP_IDLE) "In e-mail technology, IDLE is an IMAP feature described in RFC 2177 that allows a client to indicate to the server that it is ready to accept real-time notifications.". Even the FAQ mentions that.
It seems to me that "Nokia Messaging" is a marketing package for an email client that is trying to charge for a data transfer that uses a perfectly standard email protocol. What's next? A "Nokia Web" that charges me 2 euros/month for a shiny new service that allows me to connect to internet pages using HTTP protocol?
This seems to weird to be true, so I'm anxiously waiting for a reasonable explanation of what's going on here.
